Re: Customized color

You'd have to modify the source code - right now the colors are hard-coded. I wrote this plugin simply to set the colors to something I liked, then shared it here after a friend asked me to.

It certainly could be made customizable, but it would take a bit of coding - a lot of the code simply goes through all colors in UIManager.getDefaults() and changes anything white to tan, etc. so you'd want some sort of syntax for transforming colors.

Source code


I use the plugin at work. Thanks for developing this.

Is the source code available somewhere ? I am working towards a darker look and feel. It will help me if I could look at the source code.

Thanks
Venkat

Sensitivity in my eyes.

I'm surprised by what you can do this plugin, because I have sensitivity to the brightness of the screen. Perhaps, for years I have been at your computer ...thank you.
